I try not to get too full of myself when I write these descriptions, so if I do I apologize.
In my life, I've had moments where when I've felt incredibly stressed or nervous or scared, I find myself saying a small chant, a refrain, or something to help me focus and relax. It's also something I say to myself when I'm happy and thrilled.
"Ave" has become that word, though how it did is a more personal journey at this point. But the idea of a word that can mean both greeting and farwell helps me feel good.
The letters are actually using a photo I took a year ago of some trees with the leaves falling during sunset.
